X10 "sale"
« on: July 15, 2007, 08:31:08 PM »

From what I can gather, X10 puts products on "sale" repeatedly at the same price day-after-day and week-after-week. Months later a $49 product comes up for $49. Take the wireless TV sender as an example. Complete with the 5-way remote comtroller it seems to sell for $49 consistently in different clothing. Am I wrong that $49 is $49???

Yep! Just like the retail store in your home town!

That's a GREAT new price for those! I bought TWO sets of those when they were sold at Radio Shack.... and paid $99 a set.

" Giant Model Sale" at the car lots, "Going Out Of Business Sale" at the furniture stores, and "X10 Blowout Sale" all mean the same thing....business as usual. ;)

I gotta say, I got some deals that are not every day.  I watch and sniff out the super deals.

Well, I couldn't resist the $49 price for the 4 s/w packages (Smart Macros, AHP etc.) plus the CM15A.  I just had a skunk go to town in our trash cans (garage left open overnight) and our 12 year-old left the freezer open and everything melted.

Once I get this set up, I will get a couple of those wireless window/door sensors and, I suppose, a chime box.  Hope it all works.

No reason why it won't work! I have a "garage door open macro" that tells and reminds me when garage door is left open. You can read about the setup and see a YouTube Video of the setup at my BVC fan Page. And a few other videos at my YouTube Channel.

I was "surfing" on ebay and low and behold I found under security cameras, the x10, I suppose that x10 "sells" to different companies for them to "auction" the same thing they have here but only "buy now" option.  Has anyone else note the same thing anywhere else?

......... I suppose that x10 "sells" to different companies.........

Yes... you will see X10 re-sellers on eBay. Often times the great deals are less-great when you look at the shipping costs. I've found my best deals right at the X10.com Web Site.

Just use care with EBay vendors. Many are very good; but we have seen here ;some folks reporting; getting old and used stuff that is flaky.

Hmm, I should start a list of all of the good sales that I've collected over the years. I found a deal that had 11 door/window sensors for $50, a 4 for 1 Ninja Pan and Tilt base deal, a 3 wireless camera deal for $110, 6 for 1 on the PalmPad remotes, among others. All of those sales appear to still work.

I'm really tired of the smut style and after the scratch n' sniff dent sale I told em so.
It's getting insulting. Not good for this Christian.

I buy all my stuff on eBay anyway. I don't know how I got on their list. 'Prolly from joining this board.

Like I said in another thread. My theory is; the X10 Marketing Director is about 17 and still in high school. IF he is older and has a degree in marketing, then he probably purchased it while trolling for trollups, bobbing for bimbos, and fishing for floozies, in the Bahamas.

Yes, and the "Black Friday" advertising reached a new low for x10. I was embarrassed to access the x10 website from work---it looks like a pornography site.

But back to the topic of deal news and alerts, anybody seen any really good deals lately?
